Ok, I’ll start as if there were someone reading this forgotten and isolated, abstruse hideout :
Hi guys and gals ! (ahem) … I’m glad to present you an old project, trotting in my head (amongst many others that I hope to show you sooner or later). I’m speaking about motion detection, security camera etc… I’ve quite well advanced since January, yet I’ll start with the very beginning, teasing a bit my non existent audience.
To start, using the Pi to obtain a smooth streaming video wasn’t a sinecure, let’s take a look to a short video, presenting the said streaming and an auto connection to WIFI.
Friends of mine were complaining about the restoration time of backuped images using dd. I felt like sharing these few steps showing how to quickly restore an image to MMC card. I hope it will be useful for someone !
Mount raw partitions from backuped image, made using dd.
Fast copy/restore from image to MMC.
Modify the partitions content without even mounting the physical device.
And last but not least, copy large images on smaller medias.
